Overview

Learn all about sled dogs, racing, and their biggest yearly competitionWhat is a musher? Why do sled dogs wear booties? How do you bring a fast-running sled to a halt on slippery ice? Once a year teams of sled dogs compete in a 1000-mile race. They cross mountains, rivers, forest, and the frozen wastes of Alaska, urged on by their mushers for a week or more of ice, snow storms, and bitter cold. One dog is determined his team will win a prize—this book tells their story, and goes behind the scenes of sled racing.
